    Hi guys,

    One of my favorite beers ever is O'Dell Brewing's "Mountain Standard." It's a fresh hop double black IPA that uses Chinook and Cascade hops. This beer is heavy, sweet, dark, and hoppy. It is 9.5% ABV, and about 60 IBUs. I'd like to brew a clone of it (of course, I don't have fresh hops, so pellets will have to suffice). I don't know much about creating recipes, so I'd like to get a sanity check of sorts and see if this recipe makes sense for the goals I've outlined:

    Much obliged! Happy brewing.

    You'll need to share the recipe before we can give feedback....

    Now I am really curious. Would love to have a look. Sounds to me like 60 IBUs could be a bit low... ;)

    first you need 3 yeast or a really big starter and if you want it sweet I wouldn't ferment at 152 , try 156. otherwise its a lot of grain in a 5 gallon batch, theirs going to be more abortion so you'll end up with less finished product unless you compensate
